Behind Afrobeats, There Are Many Talentless Musicians – Ruggedman


According to veteran rapper Michael Ugochukwu Steven, also known as Ruggedman, a lot of “talentless people” are hiding behind the Afrobeats banner.

He thinks that people who don’t have talent are referred to as “Afrobeats.”

Ruggedman stated in an open interview with Chude Jideonwo, “When you ask me what Afrobeats is, I would say Afrobeats is what a lot of talentless people hide behind.”

They said, ‘Afrobeats to the world.’ I said, ‘No. It’s some artists to the world.’ It’s not the Afrobeats [genre], it’s some artists.”

Additionally, he shared that it hurts to hear on social media that he is no longer relevant as an artist, adding, “but what I said to myself is whoever he or she [the troll] is listening to right now is inspired by me.”
